Mahalo and much gratitude to my teacher and a very talented weaver, Margaret Lovett on Kauai for her kindness and patience in teaching me the beautiful art, craft and cultural practice of ulana lauhala.

In May, Na Kumu share their knowledge and skills at a yearly conference on the Big Island of Hawaii, Ka Ulu Lauhala o Kona conference, KULOKconference Facebook page. To find out more about local weavers and preserving this ancient art, go to Ohi Lauhala.
